Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party on Wednesday praised the three terrorists who perpetrated the attack in east Jerusalem that left one Israeli Border Policewoman dead and another seriously wounded, Palestinian Media Watch reported. 

Fatah posted a photo of the three 20-year-old Palestinians on its official Facebook page, saying they were “role models” for “carr[ying] out the self-sacrifice operation.”

The three Palestinian terrorists aroused the suspicion of Border Police on Wednesday as they approached the the Damascus Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem. When asked to provide identification, one of them opened fire. Border Police, among them the officer who subsequently died of her wounds, shot and killed the terrorists, who were identified as Ahmad Abu Al-Rub, Ahmad Zakarneh and Muhammad Kmeil.

The father of one of the terrorists lauded his son’s death on an official PA TV broadcast, according to PMWHe said: “We received the news with joy, a Martyr, our Lord chose him from among the people to be a Martyr, Allah will pardon him, and we hope he will be among the people of Paradise, Allah willing. Praise Allah in any case.”

The news broadcast opened with a reporter saying that the Palestinian terrorists died from “the occupation’s bullets at the Damascus Gate.” The reporter emphasized that the young Palestinians died as “martyrs” and failed to mention their plot to kill the Israeli officers at the gate. Later in the broadcast, the reporter noted there was a “shooting and stabbing operation… that caused the death of one soldier.” In the same broadcast, a Fatah activist from the town of Qabatiya, the area in Jenin from where the terrorists hailed, said the young men were “executed in cold blood.”
